2009 Burning River 100 Miler

I did it!! Today I finished the Burning River 100 Miler in Cuyahoga Falls in exactly 29 hours. Despite 85 degree temps over the weekend, an all night rain, and barely being able to walk towards the end due to blisters, muscle tightness, etc., I somehow willed myself to my first ever 100 mile finish.

Here is a video of my first 100 mile finish...

Did the pace chart get ignored after a while and you just had to run what you could? Just curious. How awesome to see you guys at the bridge.

Great Job Brian.

...way to push through the pain (and the smells from the compost facility)...

Mike - Early on I ignored my pace chart quite a bit but still managed to stay where I needed to be. Later in the race though I was looking at it religiously. That was an awesome surprise when I saw you at the Covered Bridge. Thanks again for all your help there! Hopefully we can run some trails together soon.

Rob - Haha.. My brother and I had our shirts over our nose at that point and were breathing through our mouths.
